SnagIt for the Mac - Now in Beta!


To anyone who has attended a workshop I've been involved with, the fact that Techsmith's SnagIt gets my vote for "work flow revolution product of the year" is no secret. However, previously all demonstrations of the product came with the caveat "unfortunately, SnagIt is only available for the PC."  Not anymore.
